solutions

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. in squirrel – cage induction motor, the rotor conductors are short circuit via end rings.

```
The rotor conductors are not wires, but it consists of heavy bars of copper, aluminum, or an alloy.
If the rotor and the stator conductors are parallel to each other, there is a strong possibility of the magnetic locking between the rotor and the stator. Therefore, the rotor slots are skewed.
```

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. if the frequency of input voltage of a transformer is increased keeping the magnitude of the voltage unchanged, the hysteresis loss will decrease but eddy current loss will remain unchanged.

In the given question, voltage kept constant and frequency is varied.

V/f ratio is not constant.

Hysteresis losses, P_h ∝ V^1.6 f^(-0.6)

As frequency is increased, the hysteresis losses will decrease.

Eddy current losses, We ∝ V^2

As eddy current losses are independent of frequency, the eddy current losses remain the same.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Tank circuit

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. Speed torque characteristics of dc series motor:

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. V = 110 + 175 sin (314 t – 25°)

V_avg=110+0=110V

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol.

L_eqv=L/3=60/3×10^(-3)=20mH

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. The magnetic energy in an inductor is given by,

E=1/2 LI^2

The magnetic energy will be maximum when the current will reach its peak value Io and it will be minimum when the current will become zero.

From above graph,

T/4=5 ms

⇒T=20 ms

∵f=1/T=1/(20×10^(-3) )=1000/20

=50 Hz

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given that, A=20 and β=10%=0.1

∵feedback is Negative.

∴A_v=A/(1+Aβ)=20/(1+20×0.1 )=20/3=6.67

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. Phase reversed of 180⁰ as compared to input occurs in the output of CE amplifier.
